Neck and decolletage wrinkle treatment
Aging in the neck and decolletage areas can often be indicative of a person’s true age. As such, it is important to treat these areas in order for your patient to retain a more youthful appearance. Unfortunately, this region is all too often overlooked when it comes to caring for the skin. Most of the time, skincare routines (which include applying skincare products and SPF for sun protection), are limited to the face, resulting in an aged appearance on the skin of the neck and decolletage. The delicate skin on the neck is extremely prone to exhibiting the signs of aging. After the eye area, it is usually 1 of the first areas of the body to develop wrinkles, partially because its structure is less elastic. When combined with other age-related factors, such as chin fullness (submental fat), sagging of the jowls, and platysmal banding, this lack of flexibility usually results in loss of the definition of the cervicomental angle, which is associated with the aging neck.

Botulinum Toxin A vs B
Botulinum toxin is produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It is a neurotoxin protein and is used to treat a variety of aesthetic concerns and medical conditions, including dynamic wrinkles, excessive sweating, chronic migraines, and cervical dystonia, to name a few. There are various types of botulinum toxin, but the ones used for treatment are types A and B. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are examples of brands that use type A. Type B is an alternative treatment for those who are hypersensitive or don’t respond to type A. The only approved type B toxin is Myobloc (also known as NeuroBloc). Treatment with botulinum toxin Botulinum toxin injections are administered intramuscularly. Treatments are given a minimum of every 3 months. Both type A and B are injectable treatments. Only a trained medical professional should give Botox injections. Type A is available in a powdered form and can be used in injections by adding saline. Type B comes as an injectabl [Read more]

Treat Forehead Lines with Botox For decades, Botox has been the treatment of choice for horizontal forehead lines. Botulinum toxin is the top nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the U.S. since 2000, with over 4 million procedures performed in 2016. Generally, forehead lines create a stressed, worried, and fatigued appearance. Repetitive contractions of the frontalis muscle is the main cause of these lines. Treating this region may be the most nuanced of cosmetic neurotoxin injections, as it can compromise the brow area. An experienced and board-certified injector is in great demand, judging from the popularity of the procedure among female and male patients. How to determine who is a good candidate The presence of horizontal forehead lines is directly proportional to a patient’s age. It will be more beneficial for younger patients with minimal lines to undergo Botox procedure, as severe forehead wrinkles in older patients cannot be corrected by botulinum toxin alo [Read more]
Restylane for the Forehead before and after picture
Using Restylane to treat forehead rhytids is efficacious, easy, and safe, and is of great benefit to patients, who appreciate the quick procedure with no recovery period. What are forehead rhytids? Forehead rhytids are wrinkles that horizontally traverse the forehead and occur as a result of facial aging. Repeated muscle motion in the frontalis muscle from facial expressions often causes these lines to appear. When the effects of gravity set in, these wrinkles become static, persisting even when the face is at rest. Restylane fillers for wrinkle correction  Generally speaking, forehead wrinkles are best treated with fillers that have low to moderate G prime ('G’), as these gels tend to be less viscous and more easily spreadable. Low viscosity fillers are favoured in the forehead region due to the anatomy of the area: here, the skin is relatively thin, which heightens the risk of visible lumps and irregularities. Restylane is a popular brand of hyaluronic acid- [Read more]
Medium and Deep Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are aesthetic treatments aimed at conditioning the skin of the face or body. These treatments involve the use of a chemical solution that incurs controlled destruction at a specific skin depth, resulting in the sloughing off of dead skin. Once this occurs, newly regenerated skin replaces the old layer, which is usually smoother and has less pigmentation and blemishes. Chemical peeling has been practised in the field of dermatology since the early 1950s, when phenol was used to treat acne scarring. These preliminary techniques have since evolved with time and have given rise to the use other peeling agents, such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that penetrate the skin at different depths to produce different results. This produces an improved side effect profile and a shortened recovery period. The chemical peel is a common treatment in aesthetic practices due to its efficacy in treating the signs of aging such as dull skin, dis [Read more]

botox for hair treatment
Can Botox fix hair loss? Doctors discovered that botulinum toxin type A was helpful for treating hair loss by chance when patients saw an improvement after receiving Botox for other issues. Some dermatologists have found that using Botox to treat excessive scalp sweating can help hair in itself, as stopping the scalp from sweating keeps hair looking stringy and unclean. From this treatment, some doctors have noticed that new hair was able to grow in areas that received injections. Seeing and hearing these results, researchers have started to study the effects in clinical studies. In a study, 50% of subjects reported new hair growth. Another study that treated patients using a combination of botulinum toxin injections and polyrevitalizing solutions showed many promising results. Subjects self-assessed the effectiveness of treatment using a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 meaning no effect and 10 meaning beyond expectation. They rated 5 different criteria: hydration, thickness, [Read more]
Using Juvederm to Treat Tear Troughs
Juvederm injections is a successful treatment for tear trough. The process has great reviews from patients after receiving treatment to correct their tear through concerns. The most common side effect from treatment is mild bruising although it is still important to keep top of mind seeking help from highly trained medical professionals to conduct the procedure. What are tear troughs? The tear trough deformity is a depression under the eye that encompasses the infraorbital rim from the inner corner of the eyelid to the outer corner of the eye. It appears as a hollow or darkened shadow underneath the eye and is more commonly known as under eye bags. While the imperfection may be confused for skin discoloration, it is actually caused by the tear trough. Some people naturally have tear troughs, while others develop them later in life. If a younger person has tear troughs, it is likely due to an imbalance called a negative vector orbit, which causes the eyeball to protrud [Read more]
